Strength Training on Pancreatic Cancer
Sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOH-CA) remains a significant cause of death, in
spite of recent declines in overall mortality from cardiovascular disease. Existing methods
of emergency resuscitation are inadequate due to time delays inherent in the transport of a
trained responder with defibrillation capabilities to the side of the OOH-CA victim.
Existing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems typically combine paramedic Emergency
Medical Technician (EMT) services with some level of community involvement, such as
bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training. Some communities include automated
external defibrillators (AEDs) at isolated sites or in mobile police or fire vehicles. A
comprehensive, integrated community approach to treatment with AEDs would have community
units served by these volunteer non-medical responders who can quickly identify and treat a
patient with OOH-CA. Such an approach is termed Public Access Defibrillation (PAD).
